We knew this day would come – a tool to disable the Metro UI in Windows 8

We all knew this day would come and here we see the beginning of the rebellion.

I’m surprised it came this early but it did.

A new tool, called Fxxk Metro ( a play on the expletive ) has been posted on the Chinese PCBeta forum.

When you execute the program on a copy of Windows 8 Release Preview, you will notice that the execution disables the Metro interface completely for that session.

When you restart your PC, the Metro interface will be available again.

If you choose to use this tool:

  • Backup Your data
  • Test the downloaded Executable for viruses and Trojans
  • Use at your own risk

We are not endorsing this tool. Just sharing the news with you.

You can find Fxxk Metro here.

    Why would anyone disable Metro UI? Those who cannot accept progress and revolution in using OS. I don’t blame Microsoft for fighting against this kind of software.

    For people who want to use this, knock yourselves out.  But you will not rewrite history, so maybe better off just accepting that this change is here. I will contentedly continue to use Metro and a whole new environment with all kinds of potential. Free apps at my fingertips, yes please.
